Set goals for 2016 not resolutions!

So Christmas and the New years celebrations seem all but a distant memory and you made your New Years resolutions, right?

Are you already struggling to stay on track? You do not need another New Year to make changes or another Monday but you can start by setting goals now.

Setting unrealistic goals can be a deal breaker and before you know it you’ve already fallen off the wagon.

Make your goals realistic. Whether they are for weight/fat loss, wanting to get fit or fitter, eating healthier. sometimes we just do not know where to start and by setting unrealistic goals we give in!

Let’s use losing weight, or fat loss as an example.  If you have a lot of weight to lose it will not be an instant transformation, there is no magic pill or quick fix and so you need to ask yourself the reasons why and then look at the how.

You may want your clothes to fit better, have a special holiday or occasion to aim for, increase your self esteem ,feel better and have more confidence in your own skin.

Remember there are no quick fixes and so you need to make changes that are achievable so you can adhere to them.

To lose weight ( a lot of people like this term but it’s about fat loss too ) you need to make changes to your diet. I prefer to use the word nutrition. If you eat rubbish, you will not look after your internal health and hence weight & fat is gained. However, of you make changes to your nutrition, you will find your internal health will improve which will aid losing fat/weight.

So what can you do to start making changes?

Cut out the C.R.A.P!

It’s as simple as that.

By cutting out


R-efined sugars


P-rocessed foods

Eating whole foods, lots of plenty of fresh veggies, lots of good protein & good fats & some fruits you can make a lot of changes to stabilise your blood sugars and your body’s ability to burn fat.

Sounds good!

You may not be a breakfast eater or you may eat cereals loaded with sugar that’s so not good for you!! You are led to believe you are eating healthy as the cereals have added this and added that to them but realistically they are fully loaded with sugar which will spike your insulin levels that leads to the perpetual cycle of sugar addiction.

Processed foods contain a lot of refined sugars and artificial sweeteners & chemicals to make your food taste nice and prolong the shelf life.

Making a small change and eating a protein based breakfast can start to lead to better eating habits and good nutrition and will help you stay on track towards your goal.

It doesn’t have to be complicated, just simple every day foods like eggs, whisked up (no milk) fried in a little coconut oil (very good for you) with say some mushrooms & spinach. Quick, easy, nutritious and no manufactured cereals, upsetting your insulin levels in sight!
